Ovlov, The Indie Band Fans Treasure Like An Inside Joke

Steve Hartlett is very disappointed to hear that I broke my foot at his gig. I am speaking with the Ovlov frontman after a cancelled visit to his New Haven home and half a week of phone tag, discussing the band’s first show back — and also mine — at The Broadway in Brooklyn in early August. He laughs upon being reminded that at one point that night he played guitar with a dustbin: “I’m so anxious leading up to and while we’re playing that it’s a bit of a blur.” But he takes on a more concerned ...

Emma Ruth Rundle’s Return To Hell

There’s an instinct among some music listeners today, it seems, to memeify pain; to make it diminutive, consumable, palatable. When faced with an artist’s misery or abjection, we tend to turn it into something glib, describing it as something like “sad girl music” or “sad boy music.” But to listen to Emma Ruth Rundle is to face not only total openhearted honesty but unwincing, unsolvable, unmemeable anguish. It’s a rare and life-savingly relatable perspective for anyone simply trying to survive ...

Hovvdy Are In Love

On the title track to their new album True Love, Charlie Martin acknowledges that the Hovvdy of today is a far cry from the Hovvdy of the past: “Woke up so down/ Tired from sleeping, like my old song,” the vocalist sings, referencing a near-identical lyric on the band’s 2018 record, Cranberry. As “True Love” loops forward into a gradually-crescendoing coda, its sense of urgency and morale — “Do you believe what I said/ That I am the man I say I am?” — is stark in comparison to the languid chug o...

Anand Wilder On His New Solo Album, Yeasayer’s Demise, And That Lawsuit Against The Weeknd

Anand Wilder is showing me his mountain dulcimer. “You know what this is?” He holds up the three-stringed instrument, strumming it and letting its tinny, diatonic sound — memorably used on the Rolling Stones’ “Lady Jane,” Led Zeppelin’s “That’s The Way,” and Wilder’s new solo debut, I Don’t Know My Words — reach me through Zoom. He grins amidst the clutter of his home studio in Brooklyn. A wooden piano, a keyboard, and assorted microphones fill up the space behind him.

Tirzah’s New Album Draws You In Past The Point Of Comfort

Colorgrading is the technical editing term for the process of bringing an image closer to life: saturating shadows, illuminating an object’s glow, heightening contrast, deepening the colors that a camera would miss without digital amplification. Colourgrade, Tirzah’s new album scheduled for release at the top of next month, speaks to the rich emotions and deep hues of a life fully lived. It’s a bold step into the experimental realm, intentionally more avant-garde and darker than her previous rel...
